Re: Guitar balance issues
It seems like the balance of an instrument is one of those issues that never quite makes the forefront, but it can be a nuisance. We always hear about how guitar companies upgrade pickups, hardware, woods, and neck dimensions but they never address design/material issues like balance.
Some company should come out with a weight that attaches to the strap button, maybe a special strap lock, that would help balance-deficient guitars. The manufacturers probably wouldn't appreciate seeing pictures of their guitars featuring the weight, since it would be a negative portrayal of their products.
